Gate for the Robertson Plot

Gate to the Robertson plot at Huguenot Cemetery.

Dr. William Marshall Robertson and his wife, Ann Frazer Robertson, were already residents of St. Augustine when Florida became a territory of the United States in 1821. Both were originally from Scotland and Ann’s brother, John Frazer, owned a plantation near the Georgia border. Dr. Robertson became a naturalized citizen but died soon after – in 1823. Ann would continue to live in St. Augustine until her death in 1850. Their box graves are each covered with marble slabs. They read:
